Good news for applicants just about ready to apply is that the requirements for 2022 will be staying the same as for 2021.  The new rules will only be discussed and voted on at the FIAP Congress next year and will then only come into effect in 2023.

There are however some changes for 2022 –

-  5 acceptances per image will count

-  There is a new process for submitting your applications – be sure to contact Jenny Stilwell This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in the New Year prior to completing any forms.

-  The closing date for applications to be received by Jenny will be 15 June to give us time to check them.  The applications will only be submitted to FIAP in September which means that those of you who achieved your AFIAP in September this year will be able to apply for your EFIAP in 2022. 

-  There is an increase in the handling fee to cover the cost of couriering the badges and certificates to the successful applicants

All the info will be available early in the New Year.  Keep a look out on our website for details.
